Invasion 1066: The Battle of Hastings
Posted by Clair Conzelman on 22nd Nov 2017
This is a simple kit, with moderately complex rules. Not as simple as old AH games, but less complicated than the SPQR series. It has a wonderful feel to it, can be learned quickly, and plays in a couple hours. Great beer and pretzels game at night with a friend...play, turn the sides around, and play again!

The parts are great. The game is beautiful. The mechanics are simple. The rules are to the point and easy to follow. However, when you start to set up this little game, you start to realize what a complex and disjointed monster the battlefield looks like. Planning on flanks and the facing directions of your troops has to happen before the first turn is made. It's a lovely battle that takes only 90 minutes, but it's a swirl of movements that have to be choreographed with some precision.

Though I focus on the American Civil War, a battle as famous as Hastings is worth a spot in my collection. For product quality, Revolution is hard to beat so I have given this game to myself for Christmas.
Though the battle mechanics are much different than an ACW game, the same great quality was used to make this game. Well worth the money spent.

I'm a bit of a boxed game snob. I am however completely satisfied with the components and the excellent rules set
I enjoyed the historical notes and design notes.

Well written rules support a game that is easy to learn, but a challenge to master. Plays great solo and face-to-face.

Envio perfecto y rápido, y más teniendo en cuenta que he pedido para España, me ha tardado menos de una semana.
